A rendering of a new shopping-center-to-be...that never panned out. A change in ownership of Chicago-based Carson's resulted in construction on a power center project being delayed and finally abandoned. Plans for a new Carson's were scrapped, as well. The circa-1954 store would remain as is.

A second rendering depicts what was actually built at the WOODMAR MALL site. The Hammond Sportsplex, an 18 million dollar indoor athletic center, was officially dedicated in late 2018.
